IBM’s new quantum processor more than doubles qubit capacity

Quantum computing doesn’t really mean much to PC gamers, let alone most people who frolic with computers. This is largely due to the fact that it is still pretty far out of reach of most ordinary people given the price to buy, let alone power, or actually have a worthy task to perform. That said, scientists are making new advances all the time, so you can count qubits in your new rigs faster than you think.

At least IBM seems to think so. The company released a statement announcing what it refers to as a breakthrough in its latest quantum processor. Called Eagle, this processor has a large selection of 127 qubits ready to solve your quantum problems. This makes the Eagle processor the largest in the world, more than doubling the capacity of other top-of-the-line machines.
